Kendall D. Brammer, son of Kenneth Wade Brammer and Beulah June (Comer) Brammer, was born April 29, 1959, in Osceola. He was a graduate of Murray High School.
On July 7, 1990, Kendall was married to Rosanna M. Showers in Leon. They made their home in Osceola where Kendall farmed for his whole life. He was a member of the Iowa Cattleman’s Association and attended Lutheran Church of Hope in West Des Moines when his health permitted.
If you knew Kendall, you know he was one of the hardest working men ever. He loved his cattle and row crop farming. Most of all he loved his wife, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, friends and family. As was obvious by the many nights around the fire pit, either at the farm or camping, he played as hard as he worked. His laughter and joking will forever be missed by many. His legacy is one of “work hard” but enjoy life. The vacations with Rose to many different states throughout the years were some of the things he loved the most.
During the last few years, he and Rose took a vacation with each family, getting to enjoy some amazing one-on-ones with kids and grandkids. In March of last year when he was diagnosed with large B-Cell lymphoma. Kendall started a long tough journey, but he fought hard. We are so grateful for the friends and family and even the “people we didn’t know” who made our harvest season successful. We could not have done it without those of you who helped. We will miss him more than could ever be imagined, but we have so many fun and awesome memories that no one can ever take away. His faith in God and his love for his family was the strength that kept him going as long as he could.
Surviving Kendall is his wife Rose; children: Jessica Robinson of Osceola and her children Bailey, Quentin and Jace; Amanda (Jon) Oswald of Murray and their children Tivon, Amaria, Hayz and Haylo; Ashley (Sony) Sithonnorath of Des Moines and their children: Lukas, Emma and Nova; David (Jessica) Brammer of Des Moines and Amie (Matt) Berry of Murray and their children: Jaden, Maliya and Meric; two great-grandchildren Myra and Jaxon; mother Beulah Brammer of Murray; sisters: Kathy (Ed) Adcock of Osceola, Karen Stowers of Osceola, Karla (Mike) Yearington of Osceola and Kim (Jodi) Brammer of Murray; along with numerous nieces and nephews and many friends.
